    Hypothetical Question...

    Hypothetically speaking - lets say you have an opportunity to win $1,000,000 in a contest. To win - you must choose from one of the following five options:

    "Punch" option ---- You will be punched in the face, just once, by a big fat man. The punch is guaranteed not to be fatal nor to cause brain damage, but you will likely sustain a nasty injury such as a split lip, black eye or perhaps even a broken nose. After being punched - you will be given the $1,000,000!

    "Bomb" option ---- Nothing will happen to you. However, you will start the countdown on a huge bomb that is hidden deep inside the center of the Earth. The bomb is large enough that, when detonated, it will cause devastating earth quakes and floods all over the planet. The bomb is completely undetectable and can not be disarmed. However it will not detonate until exactly 5,000 years in the future. As soon as the countdown has started - you will be given the $1,000,000!

    "Insults" option ---- Twenty people will shout terrible insults and obscenities at you for one full hour. These people will not come into physical contact with you nor harm you, but they will say all sorts of horrible and upsetting things to you. After one full hour of intense verbal abuse - you will be given the $1,000,000!

    "Magic" option ---- Your personality and ethical convictions will be painlessly altered in some unknown way by a magic spell. The alteration will be instantaneous and will not affect your memory, cause brain damage nor result in any physical harm of any kind. After the alteration - you will be given the $1,000,000!

    "Nothing" option ---- None of the above. Nothing happens to you or anyone else, but you will NOT be given any money.


    Which option would you choose first? Second? Third? Etc...???

    Please list them like so ... (with "1" listed as your first choice, "2" as your next choice, and so on...)

    1 - option name
    2 - option name
    3 - option name
    4 - option name
    5 - option name

    1 - bomb (we'll have nuked ourselves in 5000 years anyways)
    2 - punch (goes quickly)
    3 - insults (takes kinda long)
    4 - magic (no comment)
    5 - nothing
    It's a long road to the finale.

    ....
    I'd only allow punch or insult.
    Anything which would harm other people simply isn't worth the money imo.

    Can you take nothing and just punch the person who asked this question?

    If I forward this list to my 10 friends, will I be given good luck for 5000 years and if I don't, will a fat guy attempt to punch my face within the next 24 hours?

    1- Insults
    2- Punch
    3- Nothing

    I wouldn't allow the others. Even the punch I'm a bit skeptical about.
